NEWINGTON--It's the high school basketball shot of the century!

During the Newington-Southington boys basketball game on Tuesday night Jared Simmons made a great dunk, and then an even greater shot--a teammate made a play, but the ball bounced off the hoop. That's when Simmons swooped in, jumped up and made an awesome putback jam to score the basket.

Simmons finished with 17 points, leading Newington to defeat Southington and improve its record so far this season to 15-3.
